New planning application for development at Woodcut Farm at Junction 8 of the M20.

Hollingbourne Parish Council has today received notification of a revised planning application for development at Woodcut Farm at Junction 8 of the M20 which has been the site of previous planning applications which have been defeated over the last 25 years following protests by thousands of local residents, CPRE, Natural England, MBC, KCC, and Hollingbourne Parish Council. The closing date for comments is 8th November 2017. Two public inquiries including the long running KIG one have reported cost Kent Council tax-payers some £3 million.
